Today we have a “Shooting With Gordon Purdie” video, and the best part about this short clip is that it features BOTH Gordon Purdie Junior, AND Gordon Purdie Senior! Junior played at Lynbrook in high school, where he is a 2015 graduate. From what we can tell, he’s still uncommitted! Senior is an Australian lacrosse legend and the Coach at Adelphi!

Capitalize on your opportunities by eliminating some of the common mistakes shooters make.
One of the two things I remember most about all of my goals were 1. I shot as hard as I could, no matter where I was on the field and 2. My highest percentage shots were those that were “off-hip”.
There is a time and place to use a behind the back pass or shot. I use it very rarely, but am comfortable using it when I need to because I work on constantly.
When the ball moves, the goalie moves with it, so I want to get the ball in and out of my stick quickly to catch the goalie out of position. It’s imperative that my body and stick are pre set.
We’ve been asking Connor Martin questions about his new lacrosse training tip videos and he’s been responding in his own special vernacular. There’s no shortage of lacrosse knowledge being shared here, and this week we want to know how ConBroChill overcomes the FEAR that all attackmen have when they’re about to get popped after scoring inside!
Welcome back to another installment of LaxAllStars’ Lacrosse Mythbusters! We look at interesting or confounding questions within lacrosse, talk to experts, and try to provide some clarity. In the past, we’ve asked if eye black really works, and found it does. We also wondered if traditional pockets were heavier than mesh pockets. Now we’re back and curious about the concept of the curve ball lacrosse shot!
The older prototype that I had here is a metal one, and not carbon fiber. I’ve used a carbon fiber flex shaft before and was able to get a lot of flex and snap on my shots. I was really interested to see if I could make this work on a metal Epoch shaft. So we took it out and went shooting. The real point was to go shoot… always is!
While visiting Boise, Idaho, Kyle Harrison spent time teaching local lacrosse players how to appropriately and efficiently shoot the ball while starting with the stick head low and finishing with the ball hitting the top of the net.
A couple weeks ago Kyle Harrison made his way to the home of Lacrosse All Stars, Boise, Idaho. Kyle hosted three shooting clinics for youth and high school lacrosse players, and we were lucky enough to grab a few minutes of his time.
Peter Carey put up a video on YouTube featuring Chris Bocklet and Steele Stanwick talking about shooting and scoring goals, and it’s time to listen up, because these guys are two of the better shooters and scorers to ever come out of Virginia! Bocklet tells a great story about being forced to re-learn proper mechanics once he got to college, and Steele like to pretend his stick is a paint brush… why? It’s all about painting pipes!
I have seen Kyle Harrison give this demo (see below), or a demo very much like it, a couple of times now in my life, and I always enjoy the experience. He hits on a bunch of important points in his speech, shows the kids how he does it, and rips a couple crank shots, which always impresses the kids.
Last weekend at LXM|ATS San Diego Kevin Rowen caught up with Kyle Harrison and Sam Bradman at their shooting clinic with Peter Baum. The kids were really excited to see these guys take some rips, and K18 gave his famous triple-threat shooting talk while Baum focused on shooting on the run and Bradman showed off his one-of-a-kind shooting form.
